'We need gun control RIGHT. NOW,' musician says after Las Vegas massacre

That's what country music guitarist Caleb Keeter, a self-proclaimed proponent of the 2nd Amendment his entire life, had to say in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting that killed at least 58 people and injured more than 500 (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/reports-of-dead-injured-after-mass-shooting-at-las-vegas-concert-2017-10-02).

"We need gun control RIGHT. NOW," Keeter continued. "My biggest regret is that I stubbornly didn't realize it until my brothers on the road and myself were threatened by it."

Keeter, who plays guitar for the Josh Abbott Band, performed at the Harvest Festival several hours before the shooter fired into the Las Vegas crowd Sunday night.

The Josh Abbott Band also released a statement but didn't wade into the thorny topic of gun control. Here it is, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times (http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-entertainment-news-updates-josh-abbott-band-guitarist-we-need-1506968076-htmlstory.html):
